As French open 2016 has entered its second week, there is one question every tennis fan wants to talk about.
Tennis fans love to share their opinion on who can win this year’s French Open men’s title. Can Nadal again add to his tally of 9 French Open titles? Will he be able to pass the Djokovich hurdle?
Nadal is slated to meet Djokovich in the semi finals, if the players stay true to the draw.
However, the question is whether Nadal has the firepower to stay fit for 14 days, and secondly, if Nadal has the tenacity to outperform Djokovich. Remember, Nadal is not in his best of form. He has lost a bit of his old self, and in recent times he has been beaten comprehensively by players who were no match to him on clay.
Rafael Nadal, though, can turn tides in his favour if he comes close to his prime form. Even if he is not, he can still pose problems to other players, because of the experiences of his past wins.
It’s not just the top players, but there are others, relatively unknown players who can pose threat to Nadal. Even as we keep talking about Nadal’s chances, the news has come that Nadal has withdrawn from the French Open 2016. It is extremely sad for any Nadal fan that he will not be able to add to his 9 French open titles.
His wrist injury has worsened, and he is forced to take a decision he perhaps, would never like to take. Now when Nadal is not continuing anymore in the French Open 2016, there’s a good chance that Djokovich may find it much easier to proceed. At least it gives him the mental confidence to play without the pressure of Nadal coming on him in the Semi-Finals.
